Innovative Disruptions in the Semiconductor Manufacturing Environment



Recent advances and low cost technologies for sensing, connecting, and analyzing masses of data has push the boundary of next generation of disruptive improvement in even the highly sophisticated world of semiconductor and electronics systems manufacturing. The revolution of Future Electronics Manufacturing opens new market opportunities for suppliers all along the value chain, and faster delivery of higher quality, more customized products for users at every level, from industrial and computing equipment and data networks to consumer products. However the challenge remains for fabs, OSATS, and even EMS supply chain to better integrate automation and structural data from separate silos to drive actionable and optimized manufacturing efficiencies.

In this forum, a panel of speakers will share insights on what is to be expected and opportunities that arise from smart manufacturing for the future.
